I can't think of too many scenarios where it's not well suited. Maybe it would be too much for a very small company. Maybe it's not the best fit for a company located in a country where Ceridian doesn't have its own payroll platform (list is shrinking). But for any company looking for efficiency and standardization in terms of payroll, HR, and even operational processes, I think you can't go wrong with Ceridian.

Points cannot be edited from AM; you have to constantly unlock timesheets to update points. Attendance management link to forms for write-ups. Write-ups are still a manual form process. There is no link from AM to HR incidents. Supports lack of urgency. Some cases drag out due to no response from support. Then you get flopped to another support person and have to start over at the beginning. End-dated entitlements should not be seen on the ECP screen. New policies should not be seen until the start date. An easier way to create forms. Drag and drop. Write-ups should have workflows with digital acknowledgments from employees and managers. Benefits - medical support orders should be able to lock employees' dependents so they cannot be removed from benefits. Transfers - schedules and pay should auto-update to the new ECP info. Headcount as a qualifier on pay policies. Workflow visibility on forms. Easy way to see whose approval is still pending. When printing forms, workflow approvals need to show on the printout.

We are highly invested in Ceridian's Dayforce product. It give us the flexibility and scaling that our growing company needs. Its potential reaches beyond the basic HR functions to the decision making that our Management Team needs. Ceridian is always innovating the employee and employee experiences to offer cutting edge options.
Read full review Usability
I think it's very usable for the employee. I don't think it is as easy for the HR/PR admins - especially if there is an issue. There are so many setup screens that need to be looked at to try to figure out why payroll isn't calculating properly, hours aren't feeding over correctly, or benefits are not calculating properly. For the most part, they can't do their own troubleshooting. The same is true for the managers. Our managers find it cumbersome to go into make any schedule changes after the schedules have been generated.

We have never experienced a total/unplanned outages that effected our ability to process payroll. However, there are times when the application's speed is significantly effected - and processing a payroll may take up to twice as long as normal.
Read full review Performance
We haven't noticed any slow-down due to the integration of Dayforce WFM with our Ceridian HPL products (HRIS and Payroll). The new HTML view of the timesheets don't load as quickly as the old Silverlight view - however, we have gotten used to the change.

Most of the time the support is great; it's not always super efficient but I always get the help I need. Occasionally it takes a lot longer than we had hoped or get conflicting responses. We had one ticket recently where we were told we would have to pay the service team to support us on the project and then another person called the next day with the solution to our query and was able to find a solution easily. Generally, though, the response is great and they either walk me though how to do something via a Zoom Meeting or they email step-by-step instructions on how to do it and say if I have questions we can set up a meeting to discuss further.

Because the training we reviewed at Insights has changed how we use the system everyday. This is a key factor in our training.

The online training is very good, there is a wide variety of topics offered and several dates and times. The instructors are very knowledgeable about the subjects they are teaching. There are so many ways to program Dayforce that just the basics seem to be covered in the class.

Have a strong internal team. Communicate with your implementation team - they are there to make it work for you. Take the time to really think about how you want the system to work for you - in some cases, you may need to rethink your own business practices to see if you are working harder when the system could do it for you

In past lives I have worked at organizations who stitch multiple software solutions together via an integration - it is an absolute nightmare and is prone to breaking. Having everything in one place allows the data to flow under one roof which simplifies the whole process. It also creates a much easier platform for our crew - nobody wants to remember URL's/Passwords for five different sites

I didn't review too many other platforms, but Deel stood out completely as it's globally compliant, automates contracts, and provides up to date withdrawal methods such as Coinbase.
Read full review Scalability
Overall, we are extremely happy with the Dayforce WFM module. Our biggest pain point is concerning the twice annual software upgrades - which is the only reason I haven't rated them as a '10'. Because every customer is configured differently, the upgrades can sometimes have adverse effects on our current configured policies/rules. And although they roll-out the upgraded version in a test environment several weeks before go-live, not all testing is accurate in that environment. Some issues do not present themselves until you are working with live punches.
Read full review Return on Investment The company overall is saving money because we have one platform instead of 12 Our HR staff and managers are saving time as all employee information is in one platform and not having to toggle between 12 different platforms looking at reports to get the information you receive. The information in Dayforce is in real time. The employee experience in Dayforce is more user friendly and easier to navigate from the time someone applies to when they are onboarding to benefits enrollment, to updating their employee information throughout the year.
